abc news los angeles. welcome to maryland's spotlight. i'm kim night, you hear about programs on television or radio dealing with donating your vehicle. i have a unique program here today called vehicles for change. joining me is the president martin schwartz and thank for being here. >> thank you. >> tell me about vehicles of change, how is it different from these other programs. >> we are different in the way we use the car, vehicles for change is to provide transportation to low-income families. we take the car if it is in good enough condition and repair it and identify a family that needs it to get to a job. >> that has to make a
6:54pm
difference. tell me about walk in your shoes program. >> back in october, we did it in d c as well, we had a program to bring to light to the public, the trials that are families go through without an automobile. so we had six local dig terries and one was jim malone and susan hipner and they traveled with one of our recipients, the route they have to go before they got their car. >> that must have been interesting. i can't imagine being without a car, what was that like? >> the neat thing i did it as well and i have been running the program for 13 years, it was eye opening for me to see what they did on a daily basis, we went with a woman that had two-year-old twins and a four- year-old daughter and it took us two hours to get to her first job. and i said to her, i said how
6:55pm
often do you do this and she said just five days a week, it was amazing how accepting she was of her fate and she was just going to do it every day because she was doing it for her children. >> that's remarkable. >> tell me how do you select your recipient? >> we don't select them, we work with other organizations, nonprofits that identify the families for us, we might work with a domestic violence shelter, a job training program, a job readiness program and homeless shelter and what they do is they identify a family that really is doing all the things that they need to do to make a difference in their life, they are working. they are attending classes, they are doing a number of different things to survive but they just can't get ahead without an automobile. >> i can understand that. another great part of your program, vehicles for change is the tax donation. tell me about that. >> sure. one of the big differences
6:56pm
between our program is that the tax law allows us to provide a better tax deduction to our donors if the car will go to a low income family. we do take all cars. we get cars that are old and that have 250,000 miles on them that we might sell at action and that donor gets what we sell the car for but if we get a car that is in good enough condition that goes to a low income family, our doner gets to deduct the fair market value. that's huge. usually it is about twice as much as a car that would sell at auction. >> tell me how people could get involved if they have a car to donate, is there a website that they can go to. >> there is and the easiest way to go through that process, go to our website, vehiclesforchange.org and on the website, they can go to donate your car and there's a form that you fill out. it takes a couple minutes
6:57pm
because we ask a lot of information about the automobile. we need to know what condition kind of condition, leather seats, cd player so we can determine what we will dork does it run or body damage, it is simple and takes a couple of minutes and comes to us. we let the donor know immediately what we will do with the car and what basically their tax deduction is and an easy process. >> what do you see in your future for the company? >> well, actually today is a pretty exciting day. we just bought or going to settlement on a big building that we have actually purchased in baltimore just in baltimore county. it is 33,000 square feet. our goal is to expand our program to also start providing automotive training, training some auto mechanics and detailsers, we have a contract for cars throughout the state
6:58pm
of maryland. we expect to do more cars, last year we awarded 464 cars to families and this year 510 cars. >> congratulations martin schwartz, thank you for being with me. vehicles for change. go on the website and see what you can do to donate. thanks for being with
